If you need organic food with lots of unusual breads, beans and leaves, this is the place for you. If you're like me, that prefers to start a vacation day at Starbucks with a vanilla latte and a bagel, this is not the place for you. I came here with my wife and daughter. My wife loved it.

A tad on the expensive side for breakfast, but if you feel like treating yourself, this is a great place. The coffee is really good, nice and floral--not burnt like in so many other places.

Had breakfast 3 times in 4 days. 2 of 3 days we had great service but Sunday Brunch was awful. Cold food the other times they redeemed themselves Every meal was very good. After the first trip we gave it another try and were well rewarded

This location is extremely clean and the staff is just lovely. A nice, relaxed and satisfying breakfast or lunch experience. Love the eggs and welcome the range of condiments.

We do love hearty breads with a good crust and this is the place to have it! The quiche was wonderful, we also had a perfectly cooked omelette, salad, and desserts to go. A great little cafe that does not disappoint. Seating at the communal table can be fun, as long as your "neighbors" are not too loud. We've also... More

I dine here once a week - different meals and days. The plates are well presented, organic foods delicious and staff attentive. A great place to drop in for a glass of wine.

Pastries were excellent, but I think I ordered the wrong coffee. It left much to be desired. I would return and try a different one. I think I had the Cafe au Lait.

I've been able to get soy milk for coffee, which isn't available in the Starbucks I've gone to. Food is good also (I've only been there for lunch & breakfast pastries). As others have said, it is not inexpensive but I think it's worth it for the quality. The loaves of bread look wonderful- I often bake my own &... More

First time at this Belgian chain. Food was wonderful, portions were adequate. Environment is of a rustic country manor. Only downfall is price. Felt it was way overpriced for the food you received.
